An i9 in a ridiculously thin chassis throttles....what a shock. And sheep will line up to buy these things at a huge premium.

Let's just say, they tried to cool it with a still frozen pizza. That's still wrapped in its foil. That melts onto the engine. Permanently.

Can people just stop buying Apple products, please?

lol. Niche product but because of brand seen as desirable and a status symbol regardless of requirement. Lamborghini Urus, most people would never need one over a Audi Q series or Volvo XC but it has the "look at me" factor so posers will still buy them
